DENTIST  Vernon and the upper, Okanagan  received a severe shock in the sudden  death of T. J.

He Avas- then vivacious and in  the best of spirits although he had  doubtless at that time, receivuel the  injury'Ayhich resulted in his death, for  when here he told-the Gazette of a'  hard experience they hael with the  autos in coming over the mountain  from FairvieAV in a shoav storm. The  Aviator hael known Mr. Cnmrniskey fertile past 21 years anel ahvays found  him loyal in his friendships and tine  to his principles.

A fe>v Aveeks ago Mr. Cnmrniskey maele a trip through the Okanagan antl Similkaineen Avith the Indian Commission. On one occasion  the auto in Avhich he was riding became stuck, anil in lifting at it he  complained that he hael strained himself. Afterwards, at intervals, he suffered from slight pains, hut did not  consider the matter very serious. Last  Aveek, hoAvever, internal bleeding set  in, and he Avas informed that an operation vvas necessary. He Avent Into  the hospital on Thursday.

It soon  developed into a  veritable hobby with liim, and to it he  devoted all his time, attention and  strength. He at once gained the esteem and good-Avill of the Indians. He  knew perfectly Iioav to handle them  Avithout unnecessary friction. He exercised complete cemtrol over even the  most turbulent of the '"wards of the  nation," and instituted many reforms  on the reserves. He seemed to have  adopted the principle of the "iron  hand in the velvet glove", and Avith  him it certainly AVorked out Avell. An  instance in point is the manner in  Avhich he succeeded in inducing the  Indian chiefs to bring in the outlaAv  murderers Spintlum and Paul.

Justice Cassels gave-  judgment in the case of the Justice  Department of Canada . vs. Htm. Justice Clement, otie of the juelges of the  supreme court, for the recovery of the  sum of $1,550, alleged to have been  Avrongfiilly obtained from the ci-oavh  for per diem alloAvaiices on the basis  of the defendant being aAvay from  home on judicial duty. The justice ele-  partment charged that the defendant,  in obtaining these >monies from the  croAvn, sent in certificates from month  to month,'fraudulently 'representing  that his residence av;/s at Grand Forks,  B. C, Avhile in fact he avus then residing in Vancouver and Avas therefore  not entitled to $_ per diem alloAvance'  under the Judges act:  The defendant denied that the certificates in question av;cre false or fraudulent, but Avert; true and correct and  made on good faith.. He also alleged  that during the period in question his  home and permanent} place of residence  Avere at Grand Forks and that he only  temporarily sojourned at Vancouver  anel other places in the province during such period.      ��������� :\  Judge Cassels decides that Vancouver and not Grand Iforks. av.-is the de-  fenelant's residence during the time in  question and that'being so the defendant hiust repay,to the croAvn the  sums charged as per eliem alloAVances  Avhile in Vancouver.,.  On the allegations-of fraud against  Judge Clement the judgment says :  "I Avould have glaelly closed my  reasons for judgment at this point,  but having been pressed by counsel  both for th e c ro w n; an cl. th e d ef end a n t  to express my vieAys on the second  question,- 'namely-Avhether -the defen ���������  elant intentionally endeavored to dej-  ceivo the department of justice as to  his real place of residence,-.

WINKLER,     Proprietor  SAVING TIME  It is reported that tracklaying was  completed this Aveek' on the C. P. R.  spur from Three Forks to Kaslo, and  that an excursion Avould be run on  the loth of Decern her from Kaslo, on  Kootenay Lake, to Nakusp, tin Arrow  Cake. The road Avhen running, Avill  shorten the time of a traveler betAveen  As much golf has been played on  the Hedley links during the last week  in November' as in any other Aveek j  eluring the present year. The latest  devotees of the game are as enthusiastic as the oldest players and there is  every reason to expect that next:sum-  mer, golf Avill flourish in Hedley. On  Thursday last the Chinaman Luie sent  some Chinks over to'cut Avood on the  reservation, anel before it was noticed  Avhat they Avere after, they had cut  doAvn the remaining big bull-pine tree  which formed one of the leading features of the seventh hole knoAvn as  "Neeelle's Eye". The excuse given by  him that he hael obtaineel permission  from the Shvashes to go on there and  cut AA'ood, Avas scarcely enough to save  him from being battered over the head  Avith a golf stick by the first player  Avho'became aware of the vandalism  Avhen playing a round. The GoJf Club  haA'e the course leased-as it stands and  the Inelians have no right to give any  peruiissien to anybody to cut timber that in any Avay effects any of the  holes on the course or mars the grounels.  The Golf Club are prepared to carry  out all the obligations they entered  into with the Indians in connection  Avith the course and they -will expect  the Indians to play fair anel carry out  their part. As it is, the Chinks will be  required in this case to construct a  bunker as directed by the grounds  committee of the Golf Club to make  reparation as far as possible for the  injury done. The I'emoval of- those  trees mars to a great degree the interest of this formerly most interesting  hole.  So,far as definite information is concerned there has been no change in  the situation regarding the, power  dam since last Aveek although there  has be*en a cart load of rumors, some  of them apparently plausible and  others absurd. Actual Avork as announced in last issue Avas suspended  on AVetlnesday Nov. 26th. on m tiers  received bj* Avire from G. P. Jones  Avho Avas then in Los Angeles, .-Mid on  Saturday morning Nov. 20 Mr. B. W.  KnoAvle-s resumed survey Avork on the  strength of further instructions from  Mr. Jones Avho directed that the survey be kept all on the other side of  the river.  Re-garding Mr. Jones' movements it  avus further , learned that he hael  reached' Victoria on Saturday morning anel on Tuesday evening the car  went out to meet him in Penticton.  At time of Avri ting he haelnot reached  Heelley but may doubtless arrive by  the time this goes to press.  Meanwhile the situation i_ one  Avhich invites rumors. One of these  Avhich has been most current and persistent but Avhich in our opinion is too  absurd to believe is that Mr. M. K.  Rodg. rs Avill not hIIoav the ditch to be  built accoss his land. The land belonging to Mr.'Rodgers through Avhich the  flume Avas to be built is for the most  part steep Avoodeel hill-siele extending  doAvn to the boulders in the heel of the  river anel all in a state of nature. As  it stands it cost but a mere trifle.  Even assuming that Mr. Rodgers has  asked'for.it the same amount per acre  Avhich the company has agreed to give  the Indians for their land, it is not at  all likely . that the company Avould  hangup the.Avork anel Avaste all this  fine Aveather-rather than pay the comparatively, small amount it Avould  come to.. But the most- unlikely  thing of all is that Mr. Rodgers Avho  is. reputed to he the second largest  shareholder in the company anel knoAV-  ing that thehuv could expropiate the  land at a market valuation far beloAV  that Avhich is being paid to the Indians,  ���������'would offer objections in a way that  could stop the AA-orK as it has been  stopped,'or Avould stand in his OAvn  light by tlelaying the consummation  of an improvement Avhich Avoulel increase his annual dividends far over  any petty consideration Avhich the  right-of-Avay land Avould amount to.  The Avhole thing is too absurd for a  moment's credence. Furthermore Ave  refuse to believe, Avithout absolute evidence to the contrary, that Mr. Rodgers is a man of that kind. ���������  I Later���������As Ave go to press Mr. Jones  has arrived from Penticton but can  give nothing definite as to immediate  resumption of work. He is afraid  that the elead of Avinter is too near,  and also advises that Mr. Dikson, the  vice-president, is hoaa* on his Avay from  NeAv York to consult the local manager and engineers. Mr. T. Walter  Beam will also come Avith him and  the consultation with all the data at  hand will finally tlecide the matter  both as to place and time for putting  in the dam.  THE COQUIHALLA  ALTERNATIVE  What It Will  Mean for the C. P. R. to  Keep an/Open Route  ' iji-'. -  The difficulties encountered hy the  C.P.R. at the enel of last Aveek emphasizes the expediency of haste in  the completion of the Kettle Valley  line from Hope to Merritt antl the  Fraser River Bridge at Hope.  A freight wreck or at nek slide in  the Fraser canyon can block traffic for  hours or even days. There are' many  places where construction of a temporary track would be utterly impos-^  sible. Had last Saturday'. Avreck at  Salmon River occurred a quarter of a  .rnile east or wet>t of "where it elid occur  there Avoulel have been no room to pass  it. ,'  It has been obvious all along that  the work of double tracking the main  line from Spence's Bridge to Ruby-  Creek cannot be done and the line  kept in operation at the same time.  Traffic, both passenger anel freight,  will be diverted to the Nicola and Kettle Valley lines, connecting Avith the  main line at Spence's Bridge anel a  neAV Hope station about a mile anel a  half Avest of the present station. The  distance by the main line is about a  hundred miles anel while Aveirk is in  progress on it all traffic Avill go through  Hope. ProbablA' before that Avork is  finished the Kettle Valley system Avill  be completed giving direct connection  .betiveen the co-ist and thu southern  interior of the province,-and an alternative freight rOute Avith easier grades  than can be obtained by following the  valleys of the Fraser, -Thompson and  Columbia.���������West Yale RevieAV.

Kosslantl Camp is beginning to feci  prosperous enough to organize a Y.M.  C.A. and maintain it on sonreAvhat the  lines of larger centres. Sir Thomas  Shaughnessy and L. A. Campbell of  the West Kootenay Power Co. have  promised the scheme their hearty support, anel as this means most of the  labor employ of the camp, the encouragement is all that could be elesired.  Such an organization would give a  different tone to the character of the  labor employed iu the camp.  Speaking at Aberdeen Mr. Balfour  said he had Avatched Avith some astonishment thesloAvness eif Scotsmen and  Englishmen to appreciate the realities of the Ulster situation. But he  believed'the public were beginning to  realize how appalling avus .the position  in Avhich this country might find itself Avithin a feAV mouths. (Cheers.)  The Home Ride Bill wasAn experiment in Federalism of the most impossible, unexampled and preposterous  character.  If they were going to. partition up  the United Kingdom in accordance  with the vieAvs of the particular fraction of the population Avhich inhabited-  eacl'i part, there AA'as not oneargument-  that could be used in favor of Home  Rule for Ireland Avhich coiild not  equally be used in favor of separating  Ulster from the rest of Ireland and,  if they liked, from the rest of the  United Kingdom.  In Ulster, under the .imminent,  threat of the peril Avhich now stood  before them, all the Protestant churches, all sides of political opinion, all  classes of the community united as  one man, first to appeal to the great  tribunal of public opinion in the Un-  iteel Kingdom, anel then to defend for  themselves that with which they considered their oavii honour' anel interest Avere vitally concerned.  Under the Home. Rule Bill they Avere  driving Ulstermen into a connection  they hated. They Avere to be kept in  the British system so far as the paying of taxation for Imperial purposes  avus concerned, but they Avere not to  be given their fair share of ropresen-  ation in the Imperial Parliament.  After being thr-OAvn out of the old system, they Avere to be tieel forcibly into  a system they deteste;d. anel of Avhich  they would numerically form the  smallest fraction.  They hael different ideals from their  Nationalist felloAv-countrymen as re-  garels religion, education, and tho Empire. (Cheers.) The idea that they  were going to make the North agree  better Avith the South by putting  them into a room, locking the door,  and letting them fight it out aa-<is surely the cruellest, most foolish, most  Avicktid, most idiotic scheme of Constitutional change that ever was contemplated.

THE BANK OF  TULAMEEN NOTES  "QUI MAL Y PENSE"  An oft l epea ti-tl slantleris that voiced  by  demagogues  and   agilatms to the  ��������� et.ect  that  the majority  of girls  em-  - ployed in the cities and laige toAvns as  Avaitresses,   sales-girls,   stenographers  etc,,   are not   paid sufficient  Avages to  enable them to hoard anel clothe themselves;   aiid..to hold their positions and  dress   as well as  they may like to elo,  they   arc obliged to  yield to improper  advances made to them and sell themselves to  lives repugnant to their better-natures.     Time and .again we have,  seen   the   same   slander   repeated   in  speeches  in Vancouver   hy prominent  -members  of   the   Trades   antl . Labor  Council,  and on one  occasion in Vancouver  Avhen listening  for a finv minutes to  a soap box orator  Avho had all  the earmarks of the pimp, it avus trotted out.    Agaitrin last month's Physical   Culture    magazine    Ave   see    the  abominable  thing exploited   by  that  king of muck-rakers Upton Sinclair.  The  first antl only  adequate refuta-  ������. tion   of  tiie shameless  lie  Avhich   Ave  have seen avis in the inquiry earlier in  the year by the Provincial Labor Commission ivho in one of their sessions in  Vancouver  had before   them a prominent  employer   of girl   labor  of   the  class most slandered by these harpies,  and he Avas questioned  narroAvly as to  the average and minimum Avages paiel  by him to  his girl employees  Avhen it  Avas   shown   that   the   Avage  paid  to  these  girls    Avas  adequate   to  enable  every one of theni  to live respectably,  dress as Avell as their station in life re-  .quiretl  of  them anel  lay by a little as  Avell  for a  rainy day.     But a galling  feature of the situation is that neither  collectively  nor individually is  there  any opportunity for these girls  to refute the slander cast upon them;  and  for that  reason itself,   if for no other,  it Avould seem aelvisable that the legislature enact a minimum   wage laAv for  this class of employment,   Avhich  Ayill  place the minimum Avage paid to girls  employeel  in   stores,   restaurants,  industries or offices, at a sum Avhich Avill  represent the current price of hoard, a  reasonable  alloAvance for dress and a  margin  of five or ten dollars a month  besides.    Such a law in itself would be  a staneling refutation to these slanders.  The reason  for discussing this topic  at all at present (for it is not a, very  attractive theme at any time) is that  we have by us a socialist leaflet on the  back of ..which   is   an   advertisement  headed  "Socialist Speakers Wanted"  and setting forth that thousanels of  At  Summit camp  Ernest Rice and  Lundeen   brothers  are Avorking aAvay  on the 000 foot tunnel for  Avhich the.  took a contract some time ago.  The. V.V. & E. construction isgoing  along steadily Avith a, limited force.  There are 1.50, men Avorking between  four miles and ten miles -from Tulameen.  At Granite Creek three four-horse  teams are busy hauling out coal for  use in Granite Creek. Coalmont and  Tulameen, bringing it out from the  Granite Creek side of the mountain.  The coal they are bringing out is of an  excellent grade, antl all users are wel.l  satisfied Avith it.  A feAV days ago notices Avere posted  in Tula menu to all parties Avho had  buildings erected on government property to have theni removed Avitliin  thirty days. What the outcome may  be for" those av.Iio fail to get a healthy:  trek on them within the specified  thirty days, remains to be seen, but  possibly some other enterprising poet  avIio is not too particular as to his  facts, may find in the circumstance  material for another romance like  Evangeline..  The boys of Tiilameen are red' hot  on Hockey aiitl Avant to see a league  formed���������a four club league at least  antl perhaps a five club league might'  he arranged.' Keremeos, Heelley and  Princeton are good for a team each,  anel Tulameen, Coalmont and Granite  Creek are gooel for-at least one team  anel perhaps Iavo. With this prospect  there should be no hesitation about  getting the league formed. Tliere is  plenty of time yet, for there is no prospect of ice for a fortnight or more, at  Keremeos and Heelley.

In  estimating  the value  of  land in  the valley  no deduction need be made  for  the cost of clearing as in all cases \  the value of the timber will more than j  cover such  cost.     The  completion of!  the   raihvay   will   make   this   timber;  Avealth marketable immediately.   The  Similkameen valley contains practical"  ly no timber and the Coquihalla valley  Avill be its source of supply.  In the interest of Hope as a toAvn, as  Avell as the individual oAvners, it will  be far better that this timber be manufactured on the ground anel shippeel  out as lumber than simply logged for  mills at the coast. ��������� West Yale Review.

Hence they are scrupulous  that their advertisements are  accurate. Back of every advertisement, .back..of every  statement made to attract  custom, Is the reputation of  the merchant, his hope of  continued success.  Deception may be profitable  for a time, but.deception cannot be permanent, and the  profit based on deception is  necessarily, brief. Truth is  . the. more effective as It is of  longer duration. Falsehood  loses its effectiveness as soon  as It Is discovered.  The merchants who advertise in ibis paper: are honorable men, and this would  make them truthful. But  above all they .are good business men, and they know that  TO BE SUCCESSFUL  THEY MUST BE  TRUTHFUL.  Read . the advertisements  and profit by them. You can  rely absolutely on the statements made in the advertising columns.  j IT fl-WflVS PAYS BEST  : : ,  A  *  There are Two Kinds of Printing  A  \ The one is turned, out by the man who believes that  anything goes, but the other by the one avIio values  the reputation of his establishment too highly to  alloAv any Avork to go out which Avill not do him  credit.  There is just as good work being done in country  offices as in the cities, and often as poor work in the cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as Avell for  you and you saA*e the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end. he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class- of work.

' The 30th of November is the end of  the financial year for the Bank of  British North of America and that  always means a busy time for the  bank staffs in the various branches.  . ,A start Avas made this Aveek on the  neAv addition to the church Avhich is to  serve as a obiss-i oom. Messrs.

Mr-. A. A. Robertson, manager of  the B. C. Portland Cement Avorks at  Princeton, came doAvn on Saturday's  train and remained over Sunday. He  hud a trip up to the mine and Avas  very much impressed Avith the industry at both mine and mill.  Animated films depicting some not  ed functions and events AA'as the central figure of last Aveek's moving pic  ture piogramme at the Star theatre.  That sore of subject is ahvays intensely interesting, for after all, truth is  more entertaining than friction.

The cement-mixer came in a couple  of days ago and everything is in readiness so far as material and plant is  concerned, to go on Avith the Avork of  putting in the dam, If the other  mysterious hindrances lyould only.be  obliging enough to die and bury themselves, everybody ivouid be happy  again.  There avus another case of attempted  suicide in Princeton on Sunday night  by the throat-cutting, route. The victim AA'as J. Malono and tho cause as  usual Avas booze. When dear of drink  he Avas very Avell thought of and even  in his cups avus not offensive, but the  constant yielding to the demon thirst  for liquor is bound to do its Avork soon  cr or later.  Among the influx of laborers Avho  drifted in, attracted by..the rumors of  Work on the dam, there are some  pretty hard looking customers arid  some of them are doubtless about as  hard as they .look. And the .one.redeeming feature of the shut dpwn Avas  that some of them found it. expedient  to move on. ,   -  Ahvays deal Avith those avIio. think  enough of your trade to ask for it, and  the. surest way to get the Avoith of  your money, is to read carefully. the  announcement of those Avhs invito  your trade,in their advertisements.  The day is. past when merchants advertise Avhat they are not prepared to  carry out. i  Jack Riiitor was in town last Aveek  for a few days in the capacity of Great  The good Aveather of the past 1'cav  Aveeks came in handy for pushing on  the work of side-Avalk building of  Avhich about 1600 feet is being, put  down this season. , The streets that  are coming, in for it this time are :  White St. from Scott to Daly; T re lie  St. ftom Ellis to the Provincial lockup; Ellis from Irene to'Webster, and  Scott Avo from the Hotel Siinilkanieen for a block or tAvo for the accommodation of residences up there.  Also a, block on CaAvston Ave.  Dr. McEAven "received his neAv Ford  car on  Friday last and  he seems  to  have little or no difficulty inputting  it through its paces.   . It is a five passenger car and although it looks small  and toy-like  in comparison ivith some  of the other, cars in toAvn yet it seems  to have ' no trouble  in negotiating all  the grades  Avhich  they   do.    All  the  cost of building the car seems to have  been put   into mechanism for there is  no  unnecessary outlay in the' finish.  The  Ford  is a popular car in   many  districts, but Hedley doesn't sAvear by  Viny  particular car for there are  no  tAvo of the same make iii town.  '   Mr.   H.   Williamson   of   Vancouver  who has  had the contract of building  a residence for Mr. W. H. Armstrong  below Keremeos,   Avas   in   toAvn   last  Aveek, to see more of the Similkameen  valley  before  returning to the coast.  He,is  very favorably impressed  Avith  the  A'alley,  and' the people  of Keremeos  Avho  have had  the opportunity  of  becoming    more folly   acquainted  with him are hoping that he may take  up his permanent-abode among  them.  In this Avish the people of Hedley Avho  had the opportunity of listening to his  singing AA'ill share Avith them the hope  that he may become a permanent resident of some portion of the valley.  Another calender for 1914 Avhich is  to hand is that of the Mutual Life Assurance Company of Canada. While  the design showing .the head orifice  building of the company in Waterloo,  Out., is much the same as in former  years', the color scheme, is altogether  changed to folloiv the preA'ailing taste  in the printing art Avhich iioav goes in  less for bright colors and uses more  subdued tints. Another change Avith  Avhich Ave cannot as an agent of the  company and as a policy holder of  tAventy-eight years standing, quite  agree, is that much valuable data concerning the company and its achievements is this time left oif, and besides  the name there, is nothing given oh  the calendar in the way of information except Avhat is to be found on all  calendars. With a. record such as  Canada's only purely mutual company  can boast, this seems altogether too  much like hiding the light under a  bushel.  The   church  bazaar   given   by   the  Ladies  Guild of the Anglican church  on Wednesday night last, brought out  a good attendance and ivas a financial  success,   the amount   which   AA'as reported   clear   of   all   expenses   being  about $150.00.     Thu greater  part of  this Avas obtained from sale of articles  in   the  bazaar and   as  these   articles  weie made up by thu ladies themselves  at  the  Aveekly  seAving  meetings and  disposed of at fancy prices  the profits  Avere bound to look large, for the time  and.material. is not counted.in the expense list.    Other sources of revenue  Avere the fish pond, post office, picture  gallery and  like devices  usually seen  at this class of church entertainments,  and the event terminated Avith a dance  Avhich   furnished   further   entertainment to those Avho cared to remain for  it, the dance  being  kept going until  four.o'clock in the morning.   The part  of the evening's entertainment which  avus best appreciated hy those Avho attended  Avas the musical   numbers  by  Mrs.  J. A. Bioavii  of Keremeos,  Mr.  Williamson   of Vancouver and   Rev.  G. D. Griffiths.    Mrs. BroAvn's singing  is ahvays  regarded   in   Hedley   as a  treat, and in  the singing of Mr. Williamson  and Mr.   Griffith   Avho   each  gave  tAvo numbers, the  audience  had  evidence, that they had been specially  favored in   having this opportunity of  hearing  these   tAvo   excellent   voices.  Mr.  Williamson   who has  been  residing    in  Keremeos  for   the   past .few  months was induced by Mrs. Bioavii to  come  up for the  entertainment and  sing,   and   thus   the   audience   Avere  doubly indebted  to Mrs.   Bioavii   oii  this occasion.
